Žabljak

Žabljak ©
A trip to Zabljak takes you to the north of the country, a mountainous region that's as steeped in great scenery and views as it is in history and culture.
Get in touch with nature at Black Lake and Zminje Lake. Discover out-of-the-way places like Bobotov Kuk and Piva Canyon. Change things up with these side-trips from Žabljak: Biogradska Gora National Park (in Kolašin Municipality) and Waterfall Rafting Centre (in Plužine). There's still lots to do: fly down the slopes at Savin Kuk Ski Resort, appreciate the history behind Monument to the Heroes and Partizans of World War II, explore the stunning scenery at Tara River Canyon, and admire the engineering at Mratinje Dam.

Podgorica

One of Europe's most relaxed and newest capital cities, Podgorica sits on the confluence of two rivers, with two sides of it offering two different options for exploring.
Step off the beaten path and head to Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ and Morača River. Ostrog Monastery and Reževići Monastery will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Podgorica: Virpazar (Virpazar Stone Bridge & Fishing Charters & Tours), Cetinje (The building of the former Embassy of Great Britain in Montenegro & Lovćen National Park) and Morača Monastery (in Bare). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, explore the activities along Lake Skadar, make a trip to Independence Square, and stroll around Avanturisticki Park Gorica.

Kotor

Kotor
Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at St. Nikola Church and Savina Monastery. Your inner history buff will appreciate Kotor Old City and Kotor Old Town City Walls & Fortress. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kotor: Ploče Beach (in Krimovica) and Church of Sabbas the Sanctified (in Herceg-Novi). There's lots more to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Blažena Ozana, step into the grandiose world of Castle Of San Giovanni, and admire the striking features of St. Tryphon Cathedral.

For more things to do, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Kotor day trip app.
